Abstract

A dual-quadrature coherent receiver based on a polymer planar lightwave circuit (PLC) is presented. This receiver comprises two separate optical 90°-hybrid chips made of polymer waveguides and hybridly integrated with InGaAs/InP photodiode (PD) arrays. The packaged receiver was successfully operated in 112 Gbit/s dual-polarization quadrature phase-shift keying (QPSK) transmission experiments. In back-to-back configuration the OSNR requirement for a BER value of 10−3 was 15.1 dB which has to be compared to a theoretical limit of 13.8 dB.
